People helping in this tier will fund gear.  Our gear budget is projected at around $6,000 dollars between us.

We consider you a friend of our journey.  Depending on when you jump on this wagon of fun, you will be making a difference in getting this project funded.  With the launch of our Patreon being many months away from our six-month hike, we will break down your backing of 12 consecutive months on our website showing you where your funds went. This hike will cost each of us close to 9,000 dollars which is kind of scary.

About


Canadians, Dan & Chantal Deveau are planning the longest walk home. Hiking 4,265km / 2,650mi between the Mexican border to Canada along the (PCT) The Pacific Crest Trail. The hike should take them 6 months from March to September.


Follow along as they plan for this adventure. They will record + document this journey from the trail, small resupply towns, around the campfire, and when they lay exhausted in their tent. They will be grateful to get out of the tent and view a different view each morning.

Follow along with your earbuds with our podcast or our Vlog on Youtube (+ all the normal social links)

Our expenses for the 6-month hike will be a little over $17,000 dollars for the two of us.
